A Friendship Force guest from San Antonio was commenting on the high tech fire hydrants he observed in Lake Bluff and Lake Forest. He was very tech savvy, having helped solve several of our members’ computer problems. But we were very surprised to learn that he thought our fire hydrants had any special technology. On asking for an explanation, he said, “They all have radio antennas.”
You can imagine his disappointment when he learned that the rods sticking up were not radio antennas but were useful to work crews in finding the hydrants in snow drifts!
